Thank you for writing the document.

Maybe we could address the convention [1] that with git commit messages
usually begin with a subject, followed by a blank line and then the
commit body.

This schema produces beautiful commit logs on web-based DevOps lifecycle
tools such as github, gitlab, gitea.

I further recommend this [2] article on the subject.
